Stuck inside on a rainy day? Look no further than an obstacle course for almost endless variations of fun.
Today I set up a course that combined gross and fine motor skills, making various “stations” at which Travis could stop.
Gross motor challenges included walking across construction cones, a masking tape “balance beam”, stepping on pillows, climbing a pillow ramp, crawling through a blanket tunnel, and jumping into a hula hoop.
Fine motor activities were his favorite part of the course! We used a piece of rolled up newspaper as a “golf club” to hit golf balls into a tunnel.
Then I set a straw upright in a blob of playdough for Travis to slide rings over.
Arguably his favorite part of the whole event was when I pulled out the timer to make the course more of a race. He loved pressing the buttons and learning how the timer works!
All in all, a nice way to make a dreary morning a little less so.
